Well almost a blizzard.. It's 37*, blowing snow, 1/4 mile visibility and green grass and wet deck and driveway.. What weird weather.

I watched a long term forecast yesterday,, and the midwest is supposed to be cooler and wetter than normal through June or July.. :mad: :mad:

It's going below freezing here for the next two nights. I knew that would happen after we got our vegetable garden in.

We hit 72° today. Had to open all the windows to heat the house! It's been 56° in here for over 36 hours. :x

Hope that *censored* isn't headed this way .... :|
